A Long Weekend in Paris

It had been many years since I was last in Paris, so much so I couldn’t remember anything about it (I was a child and was camping and visiting Disneyland with family). But, it was basically on my doorstep living in London and I wanted to also experience the Eurostar. I’ve loved trains all my life and I think it’ the best way to go from place to place.

‘Come to the Costa del Sol’ - By Samantha Owen-Stoddart

After visiting the Costa del Sol over Christmas time, I wanted to write a short blog about what there is to see and where you can venture too whilst enjoying southern Spain!

Spanish City ‘Making the most out of Malaga’

Back in May whilst I was travelling around Gdansk in Poland, Adam booked us two return flights with Easyjet to Malaga for November. Firstly as they were a fantastic deal and secondly because that’s the kind of lovely person he is! Always super supportive of my travel blog, to which I am thankful. When we discussed accommodation, he happily booked a place we had been to see a year earlier on a Boxing Day trip to the city, called Dulces Dreams. It was a small hotel, very central to everything and cheap. Our booking was confirmed and we began planning our trip…
